fugate to do that and signed off on jeb bush to do this, there was this hangover from katrina going back in the bush administration and there's always been a point of emphasis, if you will, on fema by the obama administration. i think frankly it won't have mattered who came into the presidency in the post katrina world there was going to be an emphasis on fema. you weren't going to let that get politicized. yes, it's a political appointee and you're going to have somebody who came with a background to do this stuff. so i think that they realize that it's a high-wire act, this emergency management business. and most of the time if you do a good job it's good politics. if you blow it, it's really bad politics. >> i agree. >> it can be unrecoverable politics. so this is a case where good politics and good public policy and good management all converge. it's good politics to do a good job. you're not playing one side against the other. >> you know, i've always thought that the democrats being the government party because they believe in government more than republicans owe a greater debt, a

this firsthand, i went down to help out with katrina thing in september. it's weird. because you are dealing with people that lost everything and it's kind of hard to imagine that if you haven't done it yourself. basically, you know, she's looking at her curtains here, she probably hand-stitched those things. maybe they have been hanging there the last 5 or 6 years. everything in the house is wrecked, photos, keepsakes, it's a tough thing. and people deal with this kind of stress in different ways. we as disaster workers, we see it all the time. but we have a word we use, professional. we try to be professional around people that have suffered a loss like this because they don't want us to come -- you don't want to go into somebody's house and be joking and having a good time. it's unprofessional. when you are dealing with somebody who has a loss like this, just think of the word professional. that's what we try to do. this sort of body language here, she's trying to comfort here, do you think she's buying it? not with that body language. she's not really buying it. some people won't. some p
hurricane sandy that is hitting us now. better be prepared as we learned from hurricane katrina. not if you listen to the ryan-romney budget. we give them every benefit of the doubt on discretionary spending for the government. they don't specify, of course, because they're cowards. they don't say i'm going to cut this program this program this program. let's assume they do not cut fema any more than they would cut any other program. what would the fema budget under the ryan plan? well, it would be about $3.9 billion. let me did oh some quick math for you guys. that is $10 billion less from $13.5 billion to $4 billion. well, ryan is an extremist. that's not fair to look at his. let's look at romney's budget proposals stretching through 2015. what would he cut it down to? less $1.8 billion. it's even worse than ryan's budget. so if you are interested in getting a proper response through fema to these storms apparently you're not going to get one if ryan and romney get their wishes and desires and cut the hell out of our budget. this is a good time to be doing that. is that a smart move? and
the difference in philosophies. when there is a crisis in this country, as there was during hurricane katrina in 2005 or the economic crisis in 2008, 2009, republicans believe that you are on your own. that's what the republicans did during katrina, under the president bush administration, that's what they wanted to do when we had an economic crisis in october of '08. that's what they said to the auto industry when the auto industry was on the verge of bankruptcy. democrats, on the other hand, take a different point of view. rather than you are on your own, we have your back. it doesn't mean that the government is the answer to every problem. it doesn't mean the government is the bailout to every problem. it is the belief that the federal government players an important role as a partner in trying to get the country back on its feet when we hit a crisis. that's exactly what the democrats did with the economic crisis in '08 and '09 and that's exactly what you will see this administration doing during this crisis. the republican view is basically to let the states be on their own and to run eme
. we were calling it the katrina factor the other day. the bush administration, they're not terribly effective response to hurricane katrina shadowed the rest of the bush presidency. besides the huge humanitarian cost, which resulted, no president wants to be seen under responding to a storm. that, besides the fact that you want to safeguard the american public, would suggest there would be a big response from the obama administration. there is only so much to you in do. a storm like this in new york, that is something we have not seen for a long time. there is certainly the earth -- possibility for people to say, rightly or wrongly, that the federal government did not respond appropriately. i have not seen any signs that any major figure in the republican party is trying to do that. unlike when some people immediately decided that hurricane irene would be the obama katrina. a couple people, including newt gingrich, suggested a quick response this time was at odds with the respond." pose -- at odds with the response posed to the staff in benghazi, libya. we will have to wait to see w
katrina and during the hurricane. and that's going to be the big angle, i think. otherwise we all guess as to how it affects turnout for elections. and that can go either way. >> you know, dana, it seems as if the white house by the president going back this morning before doing that event in orlando, it's an acknowledgment of they made a mistake going down last night. it seemed like a good idea probably friday when they decided to do that, get down a little bit early, maybe they get something in, and then now wait a minute, woke up this morning, what are we doing here? >> it's one of those things, chuck, when you get to the moment of the crisis, it's obvious what you need to do. when you're planning ahead, the campaign people obviously want to squeeze one more event in before they know he has to come back to washington. it was a mistake. it's probably not going to hurt him in any significant way. it reinforces what clarence said, that the focus will be for the next several days on the president much more than governor romney. >> kim, governor romney does not have a full-time job right
, and that would make sandy among the most expensive. hurricane katrina, the price tag $108 billion. yes, and that was just in money terms, not in people terms. >> right now, we are going to go back to baltimore. are things getting worse? >> things are getting worse. people have been talking about this storm. is worse than it was last year, with i read, for example. we are dealing with some really cold temperatures. not only with the reagan, looking at the rain falling at a lamppost, i will tell you what. these winds have continued to pick up in the last hour. i want to give you a bit of detail. 311 is fully operational. they are asking you to call 311 if you have a cottage. -- an outage. we have got 2000 police officers. also, swift water rescue is in place. we do know that these conditions are going to get worse. we also know that housing inspectors are out and about. wherever you are right now, do not try to go anywhere. six shelters in baltimore city. the rain is starting to come down. we will continue to monitor things. >> thank you. >> the use of 911 versus 311. the mayor had remin

's predecessor, george w. bush, was harshly criticized for his slow response to hurricane katrina. the storm devastated the south of the united states including the city of new orleans. republican challenger mitt romney also canceled all campaign events in the state of virginia on sunday. both candidates are concerned about the impact on voting. >>> united nations officials are urging the government of myanmar to stop an ethnic conflict that's displaced tens of thousands of people. buddhists are fighting a muslim minority in the western state of rakhine state. >> reporter: the conflict involves majority buddhists and minority muslims called rohingyas. local authorities say the latest wave of violence has killed 84 people and wounded more than 120 others. the international group human rights watch released satellite images of muslim homes in the area. compared with photos from march, they reveal heavy damage. the united nations says the latest fighting has forced more than 22,000 people from their homes. the conflict flared in rakhine in may after a group of muslims allegedly assaulted a budd

were calling it the katrina factor the other day. the bush administration, they're not terribly effective response to hurricane katrina shadowed the rest of the bush presidency. it certainly contributed to the democrats taking the congress in 2006. besides the huge humanitarian cost, which resulted, no president wants to be seen under responding to a storm. that, besides the fact that you want to safeguard the american public, would suggest there would be a big response from the obama administration. there is only so much to you in do. a storm like this in new york, that is something we have not seen for a long time. there is certainly the earth -- possibility for people to say, rightly or wrongly, that the federal government did not respond appropriately. i have not seen any signs that any major figure in the republican party is trying to do that. unlike when some people immediately decided that hurricane irene would be the obama katrina. a couple people, including newt gingrich, suggested a quick response this time was at odds with the respond." pose -- at odds with the respon
is the main cause of damage and the top cause of damage in hurricane katrina, isaac, irene and it has been the top cause of damage since 1980. that is the first time mine -- munich re, the insurance company, started to look at hurricane related events. look at storm surge. i will see where the deep parts of the flooding will be felt along the eastern seaboard. look at this possible surges surpassing six feet. you will see how much it goes inland. because these are sigh loan force winds. we also have a full moon, high tide will be hitting tonight at around 8:00 p.m. eastern time. melissa: wow. >> that is expected to add two to three inches to the storm's surge. so that's the problem here. so when you add texas, add oklahoma and new mexico and arizona into the circumference of it, the total circumference but the problem is insurance policies tend not to cover flooding. you have to buy a separate insurance policy to cover flooding. that is the thing homeowners and businesses need to owe. melissa: i thought it was separate issue flooding from a hurricane or just looding? >> that is important
with the business of politics is impacted by weather and remember, katrina and what happened with george w. bush's reputation, it's impacted other politicians along the way. let's talk now about the actual event itself. george is a storm chaser. george, have you ever seen-- first of all, it's such a late season hurricane and it's meeting with the arctic air from canada and the low pressure system coming from the west. what's going to -- what's going to happen. first of all, what's it like where you are and what's going to happen? >> well, right now, i'm similar to the weather system from canada, i'm on myself on my way from canada. it's calm right now. getting near the pa-new jersey border getting into position to go down near the water in jersey or long island and i've never seen anything quite like this. been through about 16 hurricanes, including katrina, rita and ike and although this isn't the most powerful storm i've been in, it's certainly the largest and i'm curious to see what's going to happen because it's not often you see this type of combination of weather systems, impacting a pop l
. >> and you talk about disaster assistance on hold, bring up hurricane katrina and memories of the bush administration which does not play well for republicans. thank you as always to chuck todd, live from the white house. >> okay. >> we will be asking you many more questions in the coming days and have the president's remarks live later this hour. ari, talk about president obama and sort of his role in all of this, whichs is to say he has to act as the commander in chief, a tricky ballet for romney and the white house as well. appear to be above it all, yuts understanding he has a couple days left and has to make his convincing argument before november 6th. >> one job in america that's 24/7 and that's the president. >> oh, no. you have not seen the way th this -- the way she goes at this job. >> i love you for that but i could never oversee any disaster -- >> maybe that's the next segment as we talk about alex wagner versus president obama and get into that. >> keep it coming. >> but people know that. people know that in their gut. and depending on the kind of president you are, ronald
the economic effects. i think comparing this episode to katrina, which is the analog a lot of people are working with, for the most part i would say on balance, there's a lot of short-term turmoil, a lot of things happening. it's the end of the month. we've already got a lot of other anxiety out there. and it's in the middle of earning season so we'll have some delays. on the other hand, if we look at markets in '05, there was an initial selloff but markets sort of gained traction, especially as people saw past the short-term economic effects and saw the lift coming from the spending. >> no doubt about it, we have end of month positioning, so if you're sitting on positions and you need to get out of those positions for whatever reason, because it's the end of the month, you can't do it. the markets are closed. and so i'm wondering if this is creating a pent-up situation where we see a heavy selloff once markets do resume on wednesday. we're hoping for wednesday. we haven't seen a two-day closing of markets, i don't think ever. >> that's right. >> i think it's possible we could see so
. if they need support, we're certainly there. that's the kind of work that we do. we did it during katrina and rita back in the '05-'06 time frame as you know. our emergency response crews are ready to go. we have teams staged and our emergency response center is staffed here at norwell. you know, we expect over the next, you know, 24-48 hours to be activated and help and deal with any kind of issue that our clients have out there. >> let's talk about your acquisition of safety clean. i have a piece in my hand, august 9, 2012, credit suisse, somewhat negative piece about your company saying it's more cyclical and tied into the oil and gas business than we realize. listen, it's too levered to that cycle. safety clean acquisition changes the whole rationale against owning clean harbors, doesn't it? >> well, i think it does. it's $1.4 billion revenues of environmental service work. it's going to work nicely into our disposal assets. safety clean really is a leader in three areas. the leader in handling small quantities of waste generated by a number of industries out there. over 200,000 diffe
through like katrina or like irene? >> every storm is different, as i said. we have their own hazards. irene was a storm that moved parallel to the coast with most of the heaviest weather to the right so there were a lot of folks very close to the center in new jersey, for example, that didn't really know that there was a lot going on. this storm instead, first of all, it's much larger than irene. it's coming directly at the coast instead of parallelling it. the effects are spanning hundreds and hundreds of miles, much more so than irene. >> ifill: this storm is hovering with lots of rain centered over one area. how many days do you expect we'll be coping with the fallout from all of that? >> well, i think that it's going to take until wednesday before conditions really significantly improve so that people can get back and start looking at what happened. tomorrow it's still going to be a bad day because the system is going to slow down once it gets towards pennsylvania. it will weaken, but it's going to take a long time for this system to wind down. >> ifill: james franklin of the nat
with katrina, if the federal response is sluggish or looks unprepared for this, that's a worse damage to the president than anything else, and i think that the president has to do this. he's canceled four events in four states over the next two days. right now he's scheduled to go to green bay at the end of the tuesday. we'll see if that happens. probably unlikely. he may start again on wednesday when he's supposed in ohio. >> although to his benefit you could argue in some of the key states, places like new york and new jersey and connecticut, they're very strong governors there who are experienced with this stuff and unlikely to fumble the response. we'll see how that goes. let's bring in congresswoman marcia blackburn, a republican from tennessee. what impact do you think this storm will have to the presidential race? >> i'm not certain that it's going to have any direct impact. i will say that our thoughts and prayers are definitely with everyone and with the elected officials that are dealing with this response, with the emergency responders. i think that one of the things that p
how much money geico has made since the katrina year, how much buffett has made? a fortune. what was that, 2005? >> yeah. >> but i do wonder if you did have trading this morning, what somebody look travelers or berkshire would be trading at. >> but weaved had less hurricanes since 2005 than you would think. >> refinery, do you know anything about the plants around here? >> i don't know the specific plans, but i know that's certainly a risk. about 7% of the nation's refining is done here in new jersey and dwell wear. and they're right in the path. absolutely right in the path. so i would expect to see those guys shut in if they haven't already. which will impact obviously gas prices. >> there was speculation how you could see oil prices drop because no one will be taking supply. >> that's true. absolutely. >> paul, thank you very much. you'll be in-house with us. >> i'm weathering the storm here. >> andrew, i'm not kidding, last week, a sociologist writing for the huffington "post" said if this doesn't get us to completely try to get off all fossil fuels as quickly as we possibly
katrina, people were forced to abandon their pets. are there any shelters that you know of that will accept families with their animals? >> i don't know right now, but i would say everybody should keep in touch with media, like yourselves, because as shelters open, they will let us know if they are pet friendly. but certainly if you are sheltering at home, you should have what you need for your pet and have it now and have it ready and have three days worth of it. >> what's the protocol to getting some of your team members on the ground, say there's a situation where there's a tense emergency and your help is needed, how does somebody contact you specifically and put in a request? >> what they do is they will go through their local emergency agencies like the police, fire department or their governments and we get called. then our volunteers and staff who are trained in these services are at the ready and provide the help that is needed. >> cheryl kravitz with the national capital area red cross. cheryl, you stay safe as well in this store. thank you for your help. >> th
. conversely, if there is a problem. we think about katrina and other things, this could be bad for the president. but let's say that the federal response is appropriate. well, people just expect him to do that. the real issue here is florida, virginia, new hampshire, later this week, ohio. what happens to this much-needed push for early voting by the democrats that they have stated their victory on. what happens to that. there is torrential rain lashing of them. the president can't afford to give up any day or any minute of this voting drive that is so crucial to democratic. megyn: chris, thank you so much. also in the crosshairs of the storm, we will continue to watch it there as well is here. chris mentioned hurricane sandy causing problems and virginia. i mentioned the videotape earlier. near people already said to be without power. authorities say that up to 1 million people could be in the dark when all is said and done. power outages being reported in the new york area. the city of norfork, virginia. we will show you the tracking of the storm that could damage a chunk of
very well. i discovered this stock after hurricane katrina. i'd never heard of it before and all of a sudden katrina came through, it went from augus august 2052 this yea 2005. they made an acquisition. the made an acquisition 1.2 $1.5 all cash acquisition. what i like about this, they do the hazard that have safety-kleen to recycle last year they took 400 million gallons of waste and turn it into reusable. they cleaned it up and were able to sell it. i think this is a perfect fit. this is not just a hurricane play, so we're going long-term. a trend that will be absolutely phenomenal. i don't know why the stock is down so much but i that it is at opportunity. cheryl: you have one more, i believe as well. >> g. nrc, so a lot of stuff out about it. after we talked in front of the stock traded more than 100% daily volume, the ceo has gone bonkers. this'll be huge for them to a lot of people have thought about getting a generator. people's minds will be made up in the next week or so. these are not the $900 generators. we have an order in for one of them just two weeks ago and i am n
not as powerful as hurricane katrina, the storm stretches a record 520 miles from its eye. earlier this morning, the national hurricane center said the hurricane's wind speed increased 85 miles per hour with additional strengthening possible. describing it as a rare hybrid superstorm, forecasters say sandy was created by an arctic jet stream wrapping itself around a tropical storm. the storm could cause up to 12 inches of rain and in some areas, as well as up to 3 feet of snowfall in the appalachian mountains. flooding has also expected to be a major problem. the national weather service has warned of record level flooding and life-threatening storm surges in coastal areas. the nuclear regulatory commission has announced it is taking special precautions for the storm. there are at least 16 nuclear reactors located within the path of the storm. six oil refineries are also in the storm's path. while the news media have been covering hurricane sandy around the clock, little attention has been paid to the possible connection between the storm and climate change. scientists have long warned how glob
is unprecedented. talk about losses we may see, going to surpass andrew and could be as high as katrina, somewhere in middle of that. closing the exchange for two days haven't seen since that -- seen that since the blizzard of 1888. for weather purposes. it's being done for safety issues. liz: we're looking at a live picture of the statue of liberty and that of course says it all. this is the new york post cover. it shows of course the statue of liberty with an umbrella and the word closed. new york is for all intense and purposes closed. we are not. very important to point out. we are not. fox business and fox news are going to be going wall to wall coverage. so we will be here for you as long as you have the power on to feed your cable obviously, but nicole, thank you very much. nicole: thanks, liz. of course when they reopen, there will be a lot to watch. liz: uh-huh. we should mention, the bond market will be closed tomorrow. shutting down trading on wall street, can't stress enough this is a huge deal and a huge decision. as nicole mentioned, the last time this happened as it was regarding we
